Default Best Coyote/Fox Caliber

Just curious as to what everyone out there uses. I use a .222 Remington and a .223 Remington for hunting during the day. At night I use an Remington 11-87 with 3 1/2 in. Copper Plated BBs.

22-250 with 53gr sierra matchking hollow points, only shot 1 fox with them at 350 yards so of course no exit. Not sure how it will react when shooting them at under 100 yards

22-250 all the way. Fast, sraight, and has the knock down power.... Shells are expensive tho! .223 is a great gun for yotes too.

.223 is fine.....i like both the 22-250 and 223 ..there is no exit wound because the damage is inside. fatality !!! without a doubt
